Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put 2 chicken breasts, skin side up in a small baking dish and season.

  • STEP 2

    Squeeze the lemon into a bowl and stir in the honey and soy sauce. Spoon the mixture over the chicken, then tuck the squeezed-out half of lemon between the pieces (this will moisten and add flavour to the chicken).

  • STEP 3

    Roast the chicken breasts in a baking dish, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes in a preheated oven (190C/gas 5/fan oven 170C). Cook until done and richly glazed, basting with the juices at least twice. To check if they are done, prod the chicken with your finger - if it's still a bit soft, give it a bit longer.

  • STEP 4

    Serve with salad and potatoes roasted with herbs and garlic.

RECIPE TIPS
WHICH CHICKEN?

If you want the chicken itself to actually have some flavour, start with the best quality. Organic free-range corn-fed chickens have the most taste.

FOR THE JUICIEST CHICKEN

Keep the skin on. If you’re bothered about fat and calories, take it off before eating. If you do remove the skin before cooking, compensate by wrapping the chicken breasts or giving them a tasty coating. This helps keep in the juices, stops the chicken from drying out and adds flavour.

FOR BAGS OF FLAVOUR

Roast on a bed of fresh herbs, chopped garlic or sliced onion.
